Arid Mesa Discussion

TheDuggernaught on Selling Most of Collection

18 hours ago

Hello, my car recently crossed the rainbow bridge to the great garage in the sky. As such, I need money to buy a new one. I am selling the vast majority of my modern staples to help fund this. My trade binder is all out of date, but what I am selling is below. I will try to update it as cards are bought. Most prices should be below tcgplayer low and I am open to negotiations -- especially if you buy a large number of cards. Cards should all be between LP and MP at worst as I keep them in sleeves when being used, and in binders when not in use. Pictures and sets upon request.

mvharvill on Thalia says you can't play today

I see you've got a Crucible of Worlds handy so you can reuse the lands you sacrifice, like Wasteland and Buried Ruin, but you could add so much more potential to that combo by also throwing in Arid Mesa, Flooded Strand, Marsh Flats, and Windswept Heath. Having these lands (even in a mono-colored deck) is like having four lands that each take up two slots in your library, meaning you'll have a better chance to draw the lands you need when you need them. And here's the best part: If you happen to have your Crucible of Worlds in play by the time any of these bad boys hit the graveyard, you'll have a guaranteed one mana per turn; not having to worry about having enough lands is so worth it.

You might want to consider revamping your mana base a bit. There's a couple of tricks that could help you take down the total number of lands in your deck while still improving your consistency, which would allow you to transfer some of your maybeboard to your mainboard.

Extraplanar Lens would be a solid pick for you since you've got so many basic lands to work with, but it's downside is that if your opponents use basic Mountains as well, you'll likely be buffing them as well. You can solve this pretty easily by swapping out all your Mountains with Snow-Covered Mountains. This will allow you to use Extraplanar Lens much more selfishly than you'd otherwise be resigned to.

Another nasty trick for getting those basic lands out on the field more consistently would be throwing in an Arid Mesa, Bloodstained Mire, Scalding Tarn, and Wooded Foothills. Using the abilities of each of these lands will thin your deck a bit and help with your draw reliability, and if you also add in Crucible of Worlds you'll be able to continually use any one of them to pull basic lands to the battlefield each turn if you need to. Having to worry less about mana means you can focus more on the good stuff.

mvharvill on Mono-White-Voltron-Control

You've got a lot of stuff here helping you pump up your mana base, but have you considered throwing in a Crucible of Worlds?

Right now you've got Arid Mesa, Buried Ruin, Flooded Strand, Ghost Quarter, Inventors' Fair, Kjeldoran Outpost, Marsh Flats, Wasteland, and Windswept Heath. That's nine lands that all have the potential for you to sacrifice them and Crucible would allow you to continually reuse them!

Another suggestion might be Extraplanar Lens, but you've only got 12 Plains to work with, and you run the risk of doubling an opponent's mana more often than your own if they're also running white. The best way to solve this, if you do decide take this route, would be to definitely have Crucible of Worlds so you can reuse your fetch lands to grab those basic Plains wherever they might be in your deck, and also to replace your regular Plains with Snow-Covered Plains so your opponents don't benefit from the mana-doubling effect!

I really like the deck's idea.

Have you playtested it? Cause I don't see it well against aggro decks as affinity or mono-g stompy

What's your budget? Cause if you could afford them I'd suggest other 2x Sacred Foundry and a playset of Arid Mesa. I'd also add some Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin

Could some Lightning Bolt or Path to Exile be usefull here?

Some cards that in my opinion you could add in the sideboard are: Leyline of Sanctity, Stony Silence, Rest in Peace, Boros Charm, Worship, Damping Sphere

I have the following things if you're interested. I'll message again with my interests if so:

In that case, I'm assuming any of your wants you have listed are also the specific printing you want (like Zendikar Arid Mesa/Scalding Tarn.
